Truly a designer tulip! Registered in 1923, this tulip is still growing strong today. The petals turn from yellow to pink with hints of apricot here and there. A chameleon tulip that will delight you with new shades each day.

The show doesn’t stop there though, it is not only the flowers that draw the eye, the foliage is something special too, with a thick cream edge. Try combining with silver foliage or other pink tulips or flowers.

Tulips are the superstars of spring. They can take centre stage like no other flower can, creating unforgettable spring shows.

An easy way to remember when to plant your tulips is to do so around Mother`s Day! This timing is ideal because by this time of year the soil has cooled sufficiently for planting.

All our bulbs are ready to grow; they do not need to be chilled, which is one less thing to do.

It is a good idea to prepare the soil for their arrival by adding some delicious organic matter. Tulips need good drainage and at least six hours sun a day to flower at their best. Plant the bulbs 15-20cm deep with the pointed end up. Space your tulips 10-15cm apart, planting closer for a more spectacular show.

In most areas it is recommended you lift and store your Tulip bulbs once their foliage has browned. You don’t need to do this if you live in an area with frost, the soil is shaded or mulched through summer and the ground does not become soggy during their dormant period. In every other case it is recommended.
